Authors Live: Pamela Butchart

We were delighted to be joined by award-winning author and Blue Peter badge holder Pamela Butchart for a fun-filled Authors Live broadcast.

On our camping-themed set, Pamela told us all about her book There's a Werewolf in my Tent, showed us how to create our own story using a single crisp and taught us how to draw our very own vampire rat! She even managed to squeeze in some questions from our studio audience and from schools watching across the country. 

Tune in with your class to get some inspiration for writing and drawing your own stories!

If you’re inspired to explore Pamela’s books with your class before or after the broadcast, we have loads of learning resources and activity ideas to inspire you!

Check out our case study package for activities linked to Pamela’s books or explore ideas for creative writing with upper primary to get your class writing their own stories in our resource from Susannah Jeffries.

A full transcript of this event is available here.
